A useful creature that can Pickup many helpful items. I have also heard that it is incredibly effective at knocking out Makuhita, though I cannot imagine how.

I have an enduring soft spot for it solely because it was the first Shiny Pokemon I've ever caught. Its shiny is also pretty neat; can't go wrong with bright pink.

I prefer Jellicent and Nihilego as far as jellyfish Pokemon go, but I don't dislike it.

I don't really find Milotic as beautiful as its 'dex entries claim it is. It is by no means an ugly Pokémon in my opinion, however, I wouldn't say it lives up to its name as the "most beautiful Pokémon." Its tail and head fins aren't exactly drop-dead gorgeous, the reds and blues of its fins are likewise nice to look at but not exactly stellar, and its pale tan-peach scales look like the color of human skin, which is a little unsettling on a snake-fish in my opinion. Honestly Milotic looks vaguely like a snake-human mermaid hybrid in my opinion, which leans more on the eerie side than the beautiful and elegant side.

Interesting gimmick, but it really should get an alternate form for Sandstorm weather because otherwise it just doesn't feel complete.

Stuff from nightmares *shudder*. Just joking. It is kind of unsettling but I also kind of accepted unsettling means good in pokemon world. A naked, very angry, cultist Donald Duck. That's what we deserve from life even if we don't want it. That's how we pay for our sin.
...But I like that dragon turtle abomination from Alola, what do I know. I think it's cool. Bisharp.

It’s neat, but I wish there were other chess-themed Pokémon to go with it.

Venomoth has the tendency of being overshadowed by lots of other bug-types. Pretty nice Pokemon overall though. It has a neat design, neat movepool, neat ability. It could use some more spotlight in the future, maybe by having its stats buffed in some way? Audino.

I milk them for XP. But other than that, 'cute blob with frills' is easily one of my least favorite pokemon aesthetics. Battling-wise, though, I think it's useful, as every pokemon is. I just don't like its design/concept. Mamoswine

Favourite fully evolved regional bird of all time. It is fast and hits hard and wrecks Steel and Rock-types with Close Combat - what's not to love?

I love how elegant it is, something unusual for a Fighting type Pokémon. It's very beautiful.

The concept is good, but it’s not strong enough to compensate for it’s weaknesses, and it’s design is mediocre

Adorable. One of my favorite Fighting-types. I also really like its elegant evolution.

Boring and ugly. It also has a bad typing and poor stats.

Cute, but it doesn’t stand out.
